Vision Group's story
This is Helen, who is 52 years old and from Machipisa, Zimbabwe. A widow with five children, she also cares for her aging mother. Helen runs a manufacturing business, making freezits (frozen soft drinks) and also selling kitchen ware. The business has been in operation for two years. Helen says the main challenges she faces are lack of capital and power disruptions, as well as storage of her wares. Helen has requested a loan of $400.00 to buy raw materials for making freezits. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve the welfare of her family. In the future, Helen plans to have industrial machinery and own a freezit wholesale company.
